As printer manufacturers strive to stop the spread of non genuine cartridges their tactics are becoming more and more unscrupulous. What happens is the printer companies release a whole new series of printers and along with them they release cartridges for them with very high tech micro chips on them which are extremely hard to crack. As with any technology there is always someone out there with the know how to crack these chips.
There are several different types of printers, but the most common types that are used in homes and businesses are inkjet and laser printers. There are also a couple of less common printers, such as thermal printers and dot matrix printers, which we'll talk about later. So let's first take a look at inkjet printers. Inkjet printers are the most common type of printers that are used in homes. They are affordable, they produce photo quality results and they are more than adequate to suit the needs of a typical home user.
I've got a question that's deceptively complex. How does printer ink work? You probably haven't thought much about it, but this stuff is a common part of many of our lives. It's everywhere. First, ink and toner are two different things, despite the fact that lots of us use the words interchangeably. Ink is a liquid substance that you apply to a surface like paper. Toner on the other hand, is a solid polymer. It's sort of like very tiny plastic dust particle substance, and it relies on the physics of electrostatic attraction, pressure and heat.
Brother printers both inkjet and laser have a common issue with not detecting new cartridges when installed. Today we are looking at resetting a toner cartridge in a Brother MFC-L3750CDW laser printer. Always have your printer turned ON when replacing a cartridge and it's best to only replace them when you are prompted to do so. This usually reduces the chance of the cartridge needing to be manually reset although it's not guaranteed and in case of this the manual reset procedure is very easy to follow.

Everybody wants to save money no matter what it's with, printer ink is no exception. I have personally written many articles on this very subject however I would like to share a completely different perspective on the matter.As technology advances inkjet printers are printing at much higher resolutions than ever before. The way that they achieve these higher resolutions is by producing printheads with much finer nozzles.
